Joshua Ray Walker Tickets
The Running Horse, Nottingham.
Eschewing the hipness of east Nashville and Austin to instead walk the culture hungry streets of Dallas, Texas, Joshua Ray Walker is a big man with a high lonesome voice and heartfelt songs who is quickly rising up the independent country music depth charts. A songwriter and honky-tonker with a head full of words and a heart full of blues, his musings, yodels, and moans are featured on his second record lad You Made It just might mark the breakout point for his young career.
His debut release, Wish You Were Here was received by an ever-growing chorus of praise from critics and listeners alike. It stayed on the Americana Music Association Top 40 Albums chart for 13 weeks. Walker hit the road with Country and American favourites such as Colter Wall, American Aquarium, Christ Knight, Old 97's, Shooter Jennings and many more.
Raised on the music of the Smokey Mountains, Joshua Ray Walker took a precarious path back to traditional country music. One forged by musical exploration and life experiences that most his age have not yet endured. He has played his songs on stages all across Texas and beyond, enthralling listeners with his brand of melodic, character-driven writing which puts a new spin on traditional story-telling country. Joshua is a hard working musician who started out at the tender age of 13. Playing over 200 nights a year. Dallas' classic country torchbearer shares pieces of himself, with an effortless sincerity that has brought his audience to both tears and laughter - often at the same time.
